Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival

• The Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival began in Maleny in 1998. In a setting behind Queensland's glorious Sunshine Coast, one of the best scarecrow festivals around Australia has happened during early spring almost every year since the late 90s. It now runs from mid September until the late in October.

Conondale and Kenilworth joined in to the fun the year after its humble beginnings. Since then it has spread down the Mary Valley to include Brooloo, Imbil, Ridgewood, Kandanga, Amamoor, and Dagun.
